Personal Information:
Homeschooling Mom
Became Personal Trainer at 55 years old after nearly 100 lb weight loss.

Battling for my life as I have gained 43 lbs.

I will always have to log my food daily - it's just a fact of my journey. Coming to peace with that and back here on SP to overcome! Again.

Other Information:
6/2006 - 218 lbs. Found Sparkpeople.com through Google search for a "free fitness tracker"

6/2006 - @ 200 lbs. Rejoined our local YMCA and began working out daily

1/25/07 - Lost my Gallbladder 1/27/07

3/26/07 - Emergency Appendectomy

6/09 - Auto Accident

10/09 - Metal Plate & 8 screws put into my neck from car accident injury

6/11 - 238 lbs. - still affected by car accident injury - Dr. Emery, personal trainer, offers to help me at no cost. I was able to lose nearly 100 lbs getting down to 145 and becoming a personal trainer at 54 years old!

Gained 43 lbs because I stopped doing what I need to do to stay fit - after vein surgery went haywire - so I'm back to what works...tracking my food and doing all the things listed under "My Program" No shortcuts, no drugs, no surgery, just clean eating & consistent physical activity.

Thank's for the SparkGoodie and note. Kettlebells really worked out for me. I hope they fit into your program as well.

Thank you for the comment on my picture. I, too, have had a 20 pound regain and am beginning the trek back down the scale. I'm going back to what worked for me when I hit my goal - Medifast. I wish you all the best on your journey!
